Steven Klein's Mystique

Erotica // Tuesday, December 20, 2011
Daphne Guinness photographed by Steven Klein for Interview, November 2011. Mr. Klein has long been an enigma in the world of style, cultivating a sphinxlike mystique by hiding in plain sight. “I think what happens is that you do the project first, then you think about what it’s about,” he says. “Years later, you figure out why you’ve done things.”

The Photography of Xavier Encinas

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 19, 2011
There is something just simple and beautiful about the photography of Xavier Encinas. Even when shooting geographical locations photographed a million times before, whethere Niagara Falls, the beaches near Barcelona, or the Hollywood sign, he does so with elegant composition and stunning captures of color.

The Photography of Ralph Gibson

Juxtapoz // Saturday, December 17, 2011
Kind of a no-brainer to say that Ralph Gibson is a great photographer, and some of his black and whites from the 1960s and '70s are some of our favorites. We saw that he had a photo at auction at Christie's this Monday, and this one in particular, Untitled 1975, is quite striking.

Long Exposure Light Projections by Jim Sanborn

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 16, 2011
Jim Sanborn's long exposure photography, created with searchlights in dark, desolate environments, are some of the most beautiful photographs you are going to see. As part of his The Topographic Projections and Implied Geometries Series, Sanborn needs his camera and projector to be at least 1/2 mile away.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, December 15, 2011
Juxtapoz photographer Brock Fetch, on his way home from Basel, stopped in NYC for the night to take pictures of some of his friends.

Essay: Mikhael Subotzky & Patrick Waterhouse, Ponte City, Johannesburg

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 09, 2011
They called it the "highrise ghetto," and unfortunately, the name seemed perfectly labeled. As luck would have it, in the Spring of 2008, while preparing Juxtapoz' Contemporary African Art issue, Juxtapoz photo editor Estevan Oriol, Editor M. Revelli, and myself, Evan Pricco, found ourselves in Johannesburg climbing an "abandoned" tower in a dilapidated elevator with South African photographer, Mikhael Subotzky.

Alex Prager for New York Times Magazine Hollywood Issue

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 07, 2011
Alex Prager, one of our favorite fine art photographers who shot Robert Williams's portraits for our special issue in November 2009, just completed a series of short videos and portraits for the New York Times Magazine's annual Hollywood issue. Prager shot films and portraits of George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Kirsten Dunst, Gary Oldman, Ryan Gosling, Viola Davis, Glenn Close, and other 2011 award season hopefuls.

Evolution: People And the Fish They Look Like

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 07, 2011
This is an innocent enough looking fellow who happens to look like a catfish because he let his facial hair grow like he should spend time in freshwater. Nothing wrong with that. Evolution is a interesting photo series (and at times a little funny) where Ted Sabarese finds people that look like fish and photographs them with their respective doppelganger.

Boogie: Belgrade and Kosovo Photos

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 07, 2011
We just saw that Slamxhype had posted a new series of photos from Belgrade-based Boogie, all shots of his recent time in Belgrade and Kosovo. As always, the grainy, documentary style photos capture dramatic and nuanced moments of everyday life, with an honesty that few photographers can capture.
